Part 3 of our Introduction to pipe smoking series.
In this final video talk about cleaning your pipe & building up the carbon cake
After smoking your pipe remove the dottle and run a pipe cleaner through the pipe
Once the pipe has cooled down, remove the stem and again clean a little more with a another pipe cleaner.
The cake of carbon that builds helps protect the wall of the pipe & should be maintained to a thickness of a few mm/1/16th inch
Plus a few other tips for looking after your pipe.
